Novell 4.11 server will not connect

Novell 4.11 server will not connect

Novell 4.11 server will not connect

I have moved a 4.11 server, FTW, from one location, Home, where it was working correctly and connecting to the other 4.11 servers.  At the new location, Nextdoor, it is unable to find those same servers.
We have a wireless connection between the two sites and all other computers (all workstations) can authenticate from Nextdoor to the servers at Home.  The workstations Nextdoor are unable to connect to any of the files on FTW.
 My first thought is that the NIC may have been damaged in the move but it shows a green LED indicating connection and the hub also shows a green LED indicating connection.  A check of the cables proves nothing wrong.
 My next thought is to take the server back Home and see if it works (proving that the hardware wasn't damaged in the move).
 Any suggestions would be appreciated.  Although I have had some classes and have worked with these servers for about a year, my knowledge is limited and I have never attemped moving a server to a remote site.  I only assumed that if the workstations from Nextdoor could access the
Novell network, that moving the server across would be just as easy.

RE: Novell 4.11 server will not connect

Okay, well there was a rookie mistake made here.  I failed to realize that there were two NIC's installed.  The one I was attempting to use had never been set up... and when it was put in the server I am sure no one will ever know.
